  • Wash and soak chana dal 3-4 hours or over night.
  • Rinse again 2-3 times and spread evenly washed dal in a kitchen towel or thick cotton cloth for 15-20 minutes so all the water is absorbed and dal becomes dry.
  • Heat oil in a wok (kadai) until smoking point, add dal in batches and fry until golden brown/crispy or until the 'shh' sounds eases from oil and keep in kitchen tissue to remove excess oil.
  • Repeat same for rest of dal.
  • Once all the dal gets fried, add all masala and mix well. Allow the mixture to cool completely before storing in air-tight container.
  • Here our chatpata Chana Dal namkeen is ready.
